Are you ready for this? This is like speed dating only author-style.
Your head will be spinning with details about Author J.C. Hannigan and her life in mere seconds. Ready? And… Go!
Singing or dancing?
I like a bit of both to be honest! But I’m truthfully not very good at either, even if alcohol sometimes tricks me into thinking I am…
Sweet or Sassy?
I’m a little sweet with a whole lot of sass.
Spicy or Mild?
Well I love spicy food, but I’ll eat mild too. I just love food, okay? Okay.
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Why not both? Both are good. 😉
Silver or Gold?
Coffee or tea?
Coffee in the morning to jumpstart my day, tea in the evening. Coffee is my “let’s get shit DONE” drink and tea is my “calming” drink.
Boxers or Briefs?
Boxer briefs. The best of both worlds 😉
Tattoos or Ink Free?
Cat or Dog?
Pink or Blue?
I’m surrounded by boys, so blue. I wore out my love for pink as a child.
Edward or Jacob?
Jacob. Edward is too scrawny and controlling for my liking.
J.C. ‘s fictional creations: Iain Bentley or Jax Walker?
Such a difficult question. I don’t want to play favorites; both characters mean a lot to me for very different reasons. But if you’ve read the Collide series, why don’t you chime in?
Rent or Mortgage?
Currently, rent. But I’d love to have a mortgage one day!
Winter or Summer?
SUMMER. It’s true – not all Canadian’s love the cold. I basically only tolerate winter because of snowmobiles and ice fishing.
Beach or Mountains?
I love relaxing on the beach, but I’ve never been to the mountains and I’d love to go.
Small Town or Big City?
Small town! I grew up in a tiny rural town and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Flowers or Chocolates?
Chocolate. Always. Flowers are nice but you can’t eat them. 😉
Love or money?
LOVE. Love is priceless.
Early Bird or Night Owl?
Paperback or E-reader?
I love the feel and smell of paperbacks but e-readers are so convenient. I’ll take my books any way that I can have them!
Whew! That was great!! Do you feel like you know J.C. a little better now? Have any of her answers surprised you? Read on for more info about J.C. Hannigan and her books!

Jax Walker is a hard man to resist. He’s tall, dark, and delicious. Harlow didn’t plan on falling for another, with her heart still stuck on Iain. But it’s so hard with him gone. And she’s been aching since they last touched. Two whole years of silent wondering; of desperate sleepless longing. Fate, however, may have other plans. Just as Harlow’s ready to open herself to new love, her whole world is pulled into a twisting and painful spiral. In this new adult novel, readers are consumed by the collision of past and present. Raw and dark, this emotional minefield is the perfect second book in the continuing story of Harlow Jones.
J.C. Hannigan’s love of reading was spawned from a very early age. She inhaled novels with an unquenchable thirst. Eventually, that love of reading turned into a love for writing. She started to pen stories at the tender age of nine while sitting at her white desk, pencil posed over lined paper, writing countless stories about a girl, her best friend, their horses and the adventures they’d have going on trial rides together. Born with a chronic pain bone disorder called Multiple Hereditary Exostoses, she didn’t get to play sports or run amuck like her siblings and peers. Writing kept her company amid a world of surgeries, bad pain days, and isolation.
She started a blog when she was fifteen-years-old, chronicling the challenges of high school, dating, and coping with her chronic pain bone disorder. That blog went on to win a Bloggie for Best Teen Weblog, and J.C.’s ego inflated quite a bit over it (enough to continuously mention it even today).
J.C. currently resides in a small town in Ontario with her husband, their two sons, and two dogs. When she isn’t trying to wrangle kids and dogs, she can be found writing. In addition to writing new adult romance and suspense novels, J.C. writes a blog for the MHE Coalition, discussing the struggles of living with Multiple Hereditary Exostoses. She also contributes to several other websites, including her personal blog, the OCH Literary Society, and she is the content manager for Stigma Fighters Canada. Through her writing, J.C. brings to light awareness of mental health and social challenges. Her writing has been described as edgy, bold, poignant, and raw.
Other hobbies of J.C.’s include hiking, camping, binge-watching shows like Outlander, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, and The Walking Dead, eating dill pickle chips and daydreaming of travelling around the world. J.C. adores interacting with readers, so don’t hesitate to reach out and say hi! She tries her best to respond to every message.
